CWA is another independent wrestling company based in Cornwall, Ontario. The show I went to last night(11-3-12) at Murphy’s Inn was their third King Of The Ring tournament, and the second that I attended. There were a few changes to the card due to the usual travel issues, injuries etc. Thomas Rodman (from the BWO) was hospitalized after an NWA DAWG show the night before, Bad Karma (Kareem & Arrogance) had an accident on the way, Tomer Shalom was in Israel, and the CWA Champion Jeremy Prophet wasn’t even booked! Let’s get to the matches.
- MTH (Mr. Talented Himself) defeated JK47 in a decent opener. MTH is a former member of V:I:P (see MPW) and this was his first match since being fired from MPW (legit). He was a little rusty but JK47 knows what he’s doing in the ring so it came off fine.
- John Greed beat Preston Myles. This was the first appearance for CWA of both of these men. Myles is very acrobatic and Greed is a big man and did all the heel moves that crack me up. This was a good match and I hope to see both of them again.
- Rob Rage defeated Commander Rick Sniper. Rage is the biggest wrestler in CWA but Sniper can match up really well. Unfortunately for Sniper, Rage earned the name.
- The Incredible Hunks’ Cheeky beat Shocker in the best match of the night(best, not favorite). Both of these guys are smaller and can really move.
- John Greed beat MTH to advance to the finals. MTH can go but it wasn’t enough to beat the big man.
- Rob Rage crushed Cheeky. This match up just wasn’t fair. Rage makes it into the finals.
- In a Non-Tournament match, CJ Felony def. Catalyst. These guys are usually a tag team named Total Devastation so it was fun to see them pitted against each other. This was really good and pretty hard hitting…my favorite match of the night.
- Rob Rage beat John Greed to win the King Of The Ring Tournament. Greed jumped Rage after his match with Cheeky and worked on his arm. It seemed to help as Greed dominated most of the match. The quote of the night was when Rage was making a comeback and Greed said, “Enough of the Hogan crap!” So good! Really enjoyable match and I think Rob Rage will be facing the CWA champ really soon.
Overall good show and I’ll be going to their next one, “New Beginnings” on January 5, 2013.
